Volume 1 - Anna McCarthy & Monika Bayer-Wermuth

Interview - March 2021

It is difficult to precisely define Anna McCarthy’s artistic practice; it overflows, has open borders and frayed edges, it oscillates between genres, languages, and different media. McCarthy works alone and collectively. “Practice what you preach” is what it is about and thus brings with it a consequent inseparability between the private and political sphere. She is one person and yet so much more – thinker and maker, feminist and altruist, poet and critic – rebel – artist.

Together with curator Monika Bayer-Wermuth, she talks about her work and current affairs, about hairy saints and witches in the 21st century, about language and scapegoats, about the moon and moths, gravitating towards the light. A conversation between the years.
